Senior Members and Friends at First Lutheran get around!
Older Adults provide and receive care in a variety of ways, formal and informal, such as:
- Eucharistic Ministers bring communion to those who can’t attend worship.
- First Lutheran provides hearing devices, CD’s of the worship services, and all printed matter is available in large print.
- Older adults (over 75 years) are remembered and honored by receiving a greeting near their birthday—We’re glad God made you!
- Transportation to worship services and other events is available for those who need it.
Contact us: email@example.com to inquire about rides, Stephens, or eucharistic ministry.
Senior Resources Center
A resource to find current information on local housing options for seniors, devotional books and other books especially selected for our older adult readers. Many are available in large print and are located in the Library.
The Writers Group meets on the first and third Thursday of each month. Even if you don’t write, you’re welcome to attend and hear the writers read their work … they guarantee it will be fun. At one recent meeting a church staff member came into the room to see what all the hilarity was. Arrival is between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Bring a sack lunch. Adjournment is typically about 2 p.m. The writers are a diverse group… some write children’s stories, others write poems or memoirs, some writing is fiction, some non-fiction… it’s always a surprise. The more the merrier. Questions? Contact Kim Kimmy Tomczak at 425-445-3355 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in being a part of an evening or weekend writing group, the group is open to the idea.
Mary-Martha Circle is a Senior Women’s Bible study which meets each Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the library. New members welcome! Our first meeting of the new program year will be on September 8th.
